No that isn’t a typo. I hate to disappoint you, but the early 90’s super group, Leaders of the New School, isn’t getting back together. Since you’re already here, why don’t you broaden your horizons and sample some of Lieders of the New School’s moombahton rhythms (Moombahton...it’s a genre of dance music that...you know what, I can’t do all the work for you Gramps). Their new track “Ultimate Love” (above) features the always charming Prince Zimboo, aka hip-hop’s African Borat (we're kind of obsessed) - the alter ego of Jamaica’s Asani Morris (also of “Sani Showbizz” fame). Those of you who lack a raport with the ladies (translation: you cats with no game)  bust out the pen and paper while Zimboo breaks down why the women find his irreverence so alluring.  Warning: this song is so catchy it will be in your head for days... trust us.

A 7.1-magnitude earthquake, which rattled Mexico City on September 19, was felt as far down as Zapotalito, and the very next morning, its Black, Indigenous and poor Mestizo residents, who depend on the area's handful of lagoons for food and commerce, woke up to an awful smell and that terrible scene of floating fish.
